At the start of the pandemic in March we took the decision to make online access to our news free of charge by taking down our paywall. At a time where accurate information about Covid-19 was vital to our community, this was the right decision – even though it meant a drop in our income. In order to help safeguard the future of our journalism, the time has now come to reinstate our paywall, However, rest assured that access to all Covid related news will still remain free.

To access all other news will require a subscription, as it did pre-pandemic. The good news is that for the whole of December we will be running a special discounted offer to get 3 months access for the price of one month. Thank you for supporting us during this incredibly challenging time.

We value our content and access to our full site is only available with a  subscription. Your subscription entitles you to 7-day-a-week access to our website, plus a full digital copy of that week’s paper to read on your pc/mac or mobile device.  In addition, your subscription includes access to digital archive copies from 2006 onwards.

Just want to read one issue? No problem you can subscribe for just one week (or longer if you wish).

It was a glorious day last Saturday for the 18th Boat Jumble and Car Boot sale in Craignish Village Hall.

More than 200 bargain hunters travelled from as far afield as Musselburgh and Ayrshire to browse through the many bargains on offer.

The event was slightly smaller than in previous years due to some last minute cancellations, but even so there were 20 pitches in the hall and car park, and customers were seen leaving with some ‘really useful’ bits for their boats as well as guitars, bicycles and the Youth Group’s delicious cakes.

At the end of the day Craignish Community Company (C3) had taken more than £1,000 which, even when expenses are deducted, will go a long way to covering the organisation’s running costs for a year.

The event could not take place without great local support and C3 is very grateful to all those who helped and also to those businesses and individuals who donated raffle prizes.
